Dreamy Beach Painting

This dreamy beach scene is of an open expanse of sand, serene turquoise water, palm trees swaying in the breeze amidst lush foliage, and a view of mountains in the background!

What do you miss most about going to the beach, if you haven’t yet this year?

Our family made it out to the beach a few weeks ago at the tail end of summer, to Assateague Island, Maryland, where wild horses roam the island. Laying down in the sand while the ocean waves came up to shore was so rejuvenating for the body and spirit. My skin felt so smooth for the next few days after.

Tropical Beach Sunset Painting Brought Back to Life

A few weeks back I was going through some boxes of childhood stuff.

My parents, who had hung onto these boxes for years, decided to dump them onto me as they were clearing out their space. So I then hung onto them and am still trying to sort through to decide what to do with it all, but am intent on not letting too much time pass before I clear what needs clearing and organize what I decide to keep. If you cannot relate to this…I don’t know what to tell you.

Well, I pulled out several paintings from my youth, including this one, which I believe I painted when I was around 13 years old!

I must have been dreaming of laying on a beach somewhere on a South Pacific island! Come to think of it…I still dream of that.

Because this painting was on a cheap piece of paper and showing its age, I scanned it and gave it a fresh renovation in Adobe Photoshop.

Manzanillo Beach Art Print

Manzanillo is located on the southern tip of the Limón province on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica, near Panama. In this painting, a palm tree is hanging out in the warm late-morning breeze, next to the Caribbean water gently rolling up to the shore. Red flowers are in bloom on a bush right below the palm tree.

These Costa Rica art prints are available as ultra premium prints, unframed or framed, in my Spanglish America Etsy shop. They make for excellent beach decor, especially for those that have vacationed or lived in Costa Rica (I served as a Peace Corps Volunteer there from 2006 to 2008 and came to know the country intimately).

Evening Gold – Beach Painting

“Evening Gold” is a watercolor painting of warm sunset colors against a cool evening sky, with palm trees, mountains in the background, the ocean, and gold-hued sand. It’s painted in more of an impressionistic style, to give a dreamy effect, as if you can drift off and be there in your mind!

Prints on Fine Art Paper are available for purchase here, in size 14″ x 21″ or 16″ x 24″, with various framing options (sample below).

The Simplicity of It All

I’ve been going through some of my older paintings lately, and found this one. I painted it six years ago, from a photo that I took on a beach in Costa Rica more than eight years ago! I call it “The Simplicity of it All“.

Honeymoon Island

This watercolor painting is of a scene at Honeymoon Island, Florida. Honeymoon Island is located in Pinellas County, between Clearwater and Palm Harbor. My grandmother lived in Palm Harbor, so whenever I would visit, this was one of the places I loved to go to. It’s a great little island that you can drive out to. There is a small fee to enter, but the unspoiled nature is beautiful, and you feel “away from it all”. I hope the algae problem in Florida isn’t affecting Pinellas County too much!
